an assault weapon ban that bans 35 different weapons. the weapon used was not an assault weapon, therefore it wasn't banned. >> the definition of assault weapons has been gamed by the gun lobby in the service of the gunmakers, no doubt. if the bushmaster rifle with 30 rounds per clip doesn't qualify as an assault weapon, the term "assault weapon" in my opinion is absolutely meaningless. i wanted to get some answers from congressman kingston. so i had an opportunity to visit with him earlier today. >> congressman, good to have you on "the ed show" tonight. i appreciate your time. >> well, thank you, ed. sad times. >> we're having quite a debate in this country about gun control, obviously. and there is questions of bans coming up in the senate. senator feinstein says she is going to reintroduce the assault weapons ban. as it stands, could you go along with that? >> well, i would have to see what she has in mind. and as you know, the ar-15 that was used in this unfortunate tragedy was not considered an assault weapon. and i don't know if she would put that in there. it only shoots one round
